Within Our Reach
We have a powerful opportunity to introduce advancements in children’s healthcare that will define this region as a nationally recognized leader in pediatric medicine. The hospital will be a place where families from Pascagoula, Mississippi to Port St. Joe will have access to the finest medical care possible across specialties such as prenatal and neonatal care, pediatric cancer care, pediatric internal medicine and many others.
Within Your Hands
We’ve launched an ambitious building initiative, utilizing the most advanced technological and medical understanding to date. The hospital will be a building designed with the help of skilled medical architects, with input from doctors, surgeons and staff as well as the children and families of our community.
HOW FAR WE’VE COME
Every Life. Every Day. Your Gifts Make The Difference.
Our campaign was launched in December, 2016, with the goal of raising over $35,000,000 in private contributions. The project is set to be completed over a series of phases with the full scope of the work completed in March, 2019. The pediatric facilities and care established now will be a critical resource for the growing population of our region and beyond. We are looking for parents, families, business leaders and organizations to help support this ambitious effort. Extraordinary care for our children and generations of children to come is Within Our Reach, but it’s Within Your Hands.
